LARAMIE -- After five seasons in Fort Collins, Mike Bobo is out as head coach of the Colorado State football program.

According to a report from Football Scoop, Bobo was informed Wednesday of the school's decision and a team meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m.




The Bobo tenure got off to a solid start with the Rams finishing 7-6 during his first three seasons at the helm. Then, the wheels fell off. The Rams have gone 7-17 since.

CSU never won a bowl game under Bobo and has currently lost 12 straight to longtime rivals, Wyoming, Colorado and Air Force. Bobo coached his last game Saturday afternoon in front of a paltry crowd at Canvas Stadium. That was a 31-24 loss to No. 20 Boise State.

It has been reported that if Bobo was fired before Jan. 1, the school would be facing a $5.5 million buyout. The amount would decrease to $3 million after.

Bobo becomes the third MWC to be terminated in the early offseason, joining Bob Davies of New Mexico and Tony Sanchez at UNLV.
